ESET Mobile Security for Android has lots of useful functionality to offer. The security app protects against viruses, phishing, and web-based attacks. It scans your device, it audits the apps installed on your device, and it blocks texts and calls. Should you lose your device or should your device get stolen, ESET Mobile Security can remotely lock it, remotely wipe it, locate it using GPS and WiFi, and initiate an alarm that will help you locate your device.

The app’s anti-theft functionality has been enhanced. You see, the newest version of ESET Mobile Security comes with proactive anti-theft features.
